Golden Brook Farm is a cut flower farm and florist in mid-coast, Maine. We grow intensively on less than an acre of land on the side of Bald Mountain, several miles outside of the village of Camden. Our clients include weekly bouquet subscribers, individuals, businesses, restaurants, and B&Bs. We also provide arrangements for weddings and other special events.
We are thrilled to announce that we are adding to our team for the 2019 growing season! We are looking for hard-workers who will take pride creating a unique, natural, and high-quality product for our clients. Candidates should be good communicators, dependable, and enjoy working in a fast-paced environment.
We are hiring both flower growers and designers. Candidates could do both jobs if qualified, or these positions could be filled by different people with specific strengths.
FLOWER GROWERS (Weekday mornings, March-November)
Responsibilities include prepping beds, seeding, transplanting, weeding, deadheading, watering, fertilizing, harvesting, and prepping plant material for the floral designers.

The ability to work well either on a team or independently is essential. Pay is hourly, starting at $10/hour.
FREE-LANCE FLORAL DESIGNERS: Fridays and some Saturdays from May to October.
